that occurred at sandy hook elementary school, the cities, states and now president of looking for ways to stem violence what. what took place in connecticut was not the only reason i began working on this legislation. oftentimes it takes a national tragedy to create significant among them and political pressure around the issue of gun violence. but, what is getting missed in these debates is that the reality is that these tragedies associated with gun violence take place every single day in our neighborhoods all across the country. i know all too well what this tragedy looks like. i experienced it every time every time i get a phone call in the middle of the night for the police department alerting me of another violent crime are shooting. families as they grieve. i experience it every time i go to san francisco general hospital to console the victims of gun violence, last year a victim as young as five years old. we continue to address the causes and impact of this senseless gun violence. increasingly involves young adults under the age of 25; often related to disputes over turf and

to go in different direction. the unfortunate and very tragic incident in connecticut in sandy hook elementary school of course heightened everybody's awareness of what violence can really be all about. and as we have been not only responding, reacting to this national tragedy that i think president obama has adequately described as broken all of our hearts, and in every funeral that has taken place, for those 20 innocent children and six innocent adults in the school districts, and school administrators, we obviously have shared in that very tragic event, all of us. it has touched everybody across this country. san francisco is no different. and i have shared that emotional experience with the supervisor and everybody here, in our law enforcement, and in our health department as well. the question for us, then, is what do we do about it? and not only can we share in this tragedy and signal our sympathies to the families as we've done, but we've got to do something more. and this is where i want to make sure i recognize all of the people that are in that effort of doing something ab

want to state we're not here trying to undermine funding for sandy, needed for sandy. some of the things the house did i think are legitimate in terms of saying let's set aside unrelated matters. it doesn't mean we cast them into the dust bin never to be seen again. it simply means let's let those that are not emergency situations be more carefully examined in terms of whether we need that. and if someone does come to the floor, as senator lee is going to do, is my understanding, and offers a potential offset, let's at least look at that possibility. the debt clock is ticking and ticking ever faster. and it is destroying the hopes and dreams of future generations. and i think we have a moral responsibility to at least be as conscious and effective with dealing with the taxpayers' dollars in terms of how they're spent, whether it's an emergency supplemental related to a disaster or whether it's just a normal appropriation that comes along every year through our appropriations process. we haven't exercised that kind of discipline, and our country is going to pay a very seriou

year which also provided much-needed relief funds for hurricane sandy victims. that was a bipartisan bill. it was supported by senate republicans and democrats alike. but the republicans in the house regrettably gutted the bill and sent back legislation that explicitly cut out wildfire relief. in that context, let me make one point absolutely clear. this is an emergency. some people have questioned the need for funding and have asked why we wouldn't limit dollars to just hurricane sandy saer kwras like the bill -- hurricane sandy areas. the short answer is it is the fiscally smart thing to do, the right thing to do, and the fair thing to do. this bill is an emergency appropriations bill for all national disasters, not just hurricane sandy. it is our best hope of seeing wildfire relief. i emphatically note that the colorado emergencies occurred before hurricane sandy and the west should not have to continue to wait. very few emergency supplemental bills pass congress. this bill is passing now, and it should include aid for colorado and other states across our country. we as americans,

steps in. after hurricane sandy hit the northeast some republicans in congress thought it was time for the rules to change. >> congressman from south carolina saying he's not going to support the measure. >> my difficulty with it is it's not paid for. we're borrowing this additional money to do this. it's wrong. >> it's dpul of pork and it's not paid for. >> jon: that's crazy. you you are a man from south carolina you've got a problem putting anything in pork. for god's sakes. south carolina has a pork-based economy. your state had no problem accepting aid after hugo and gafton. turns out there's republican officials in the northeast and they would like a word with you folks. >> to my colleagues who are from states with disasters recently who decided we need change the rules of the game, shame on you. >> new jersey does not expect anything more than what was done for louisiana, alabama and mississippi in katrina. if they want to make new rules about disaster, well, they picked the wrong state to make the new rules with. >> jon: my state.

approved a $50-billion aid package for hurricane sandy relief, and senate majority leader harry reid said yesterday the senate could move swiftly to pass it. the controversial keystone xl pipeline may be back in play. the project has received approval from nebraska governor dave heineman this week. heineman approved a re-routing of the pipeline, which would transport crude oil from canada to the u.s. heineman said the route for the pipeline now avoids the state's sandhills region, which enviromentalists previously opposed, calling the region "environmentally sensitive." any move forward will have to be approved by the obama administration, which blocked progress of the project a year ago. superstorm sandy is taking a toll on corporate america. verizon blamed its $4.23-billion loss on storm costs. travelers insurance company turned a $394-million profit, but that was down from $618 million last year because of hurricane- related expenses. and delta airlines, which cancelled nealry 20,000 flights, had a net income of $7 million, off $425 million from a year earlier. despite near constant pl

bill to assist americans harmed by superstorm sandy. the house recently approved the bill, and president obama has promied to sign. lawmakers from the northeast contend the money is urgently needed, especially in new jersey, new york and connecticut. conservative republicans say the relief package will only add to the nation's debt unless it's off- set with spending cuts. several of president obama's 2012 recess appointments are being ruled "invalid." a federal appeals court unanimously ruled that the president's appointments to the national labor relations board last year were unconstitutional. senate republicans filed the case against the president, arguing that the appointments were made while the senate was in pro-forma session and not in recess. the obama administration is expected to appeal. a fresh audit of apple's supply chain reveals continuing labor problems. apple has conducted nearly 400 audits of its suppliers, including foxconn. investigations revealed cases of underage workers, discrimination and low wages. the company says it is cracking down on its most ch
